Unforgettable images and rare film, first-time ever seen footage of Monk in America, Monk in Europe, Monk in Japan, Monk's "Round Midnight," "Epistrophy," "Pannonica," "Well, You Needn't." A portrait of a genius in full force, Thelonious Monk: American Composer explores the musical mind of the man who took the piano from stride to bop and beyond. His angular statements are landmark documents in the history of American music. The master, misterioso Monk, the traditionalist who went outside the tradition to expand a tradition of his own, the composer who helped write the book on modern jazz. Thelonious Monk is explored and remembered by his stellar disciples--Randy Weston, Barry Harris, Ben Riley, and Billy Taylor, among others. On the personal side, he's seen as a father and brother, remembered by his son, Thelonious Jr., and his sister Marion. An intimate portrait of one of the century's great composers and artistic innovators, Thelonious Monk: American Composer is filled with surprises and the singular humor of a jazz giant brought to life by a legacy of brilliant music.
